Echoes Top 25 for March 2014

Progressive guitars, Serene Songs and Hang Drums Lead Echoes Top 25 for March

140117-beck-morning-phase-cover-artIt’s no surprise that our March CD of the Month, Mark McGuire’s Along the Way, leads the Echoes Top 25.  Fans of Popol Vuh, Ashra and Mike Oldfield should be in prog-epic heaven with this album.  Hear Mark McGuire interviewed on Monday March 31.   Beck’s Morning Phase comes up next, a beautiful psychedelic tinged pastoral song-cycle from this popular, yet I think still underrated artist.  And James Hood returns to the Echoes Top 25, having previously spent some time here with his other recording persona, Moodswings.  His album of Hang meditations, Ceremony. sounds better the more I hear it. Fully half of the top 25 have never been on this list before.
